Kylie Jenner’s birthday bag from Kuwaiti label Marzook

  • The $2,495 bag, featuring a unique spherical silhouette and an optional chain strap, was sold out on the website
  • The Arab label’s line of accessories consists of exotic leather and skins, precious metals, and resins

JEDDAH: When Kylie Jenner, who is set to become the world’s youngest self-made female billionaire, celebrates her birthday, one can bet it will be no ordinary affair.

For her 21st birthday, she did not disappoint. The entire Kardashian-Jenner clan came together for not one, but two, celebrations for the reality TV star. The festivities began Thursday night and lasted into the wee hours of Friday. And the stand-out was a sparkling crystal orb bag by Kuwaiti brand Marzook sported by the birthday girl herself.
Kylie started off at Craig’s restaurant in Los Angeles with a hot pink satin dress by Peter Dundas, which boasted ‘80s-inspired shoulder pads, a cut-out center and bow detail.
Post-dinner, the cosmetics mogul changed into a more risqué birthday suit adorned with 70,000 Swarovski crystals. The outfit, also pink, was a custom-made tube top and cycling shorts by haute couture brand LaBourjoisie. Kylie added to the bling factor with Marzook’s matching bag.
The accessories maison, helmed by designer siblings Fahad and Shouq Al-Marzook, has made bags that have been sported by the likes of Amal Clooney, Lupita Nyong’o and Cara Delevingne.
The Arab label’s line of accessories consists of exotic leather and skins, precious metals, and resins. The designs draw inspiration from a mix of Eastern and Western cultures, reflecting the world in which the brand was developed. 
The $2,495 bag, featuring a unique spherical silhouette and an optional chain strap, was sold out on the website.
Kylie posted several images from her birthday parties on Instagram. Summing up her night, she wrote alongside a photo of the five famous sisters: “A bunch of baddies ... we’re 21 today.”
Among those who attended the after-party at Delilah’s were Delevingne, Ashley Benson, Chris Brown, Dave Chapelle, Jordan Clarkson, Kevin Durant, Bella Hadid, Winnie Harlow, Sophia Hutchins, Caitlyn Jenner, Stassi Karanikolaou, Draya Michele, French Montana, The Weeknd, Kanye West and Jordyn Woods.
Media sources reported that an unidentified woman was photographed being taken out of Kylie’s party by paramedics on a stretcher. While it was unclear whether she was a guest at the party, Caitlyn Jenner and close friend Sophia Hutchins were seen in the background.
Last month, the “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star was declared the youngest person on the Forbes list of America’s Richest Self-Made Women, with an estimated net worth of $900 million.
However, some critics were quick to note that Kylie is anything but “self-made,” as she was born into wealth and fame.


Nora Attal has her day in the sun in Marrakesh

Nora Attal has her day in the sun in Marrakesh

DUBAI: British-Moroccan model Nora Attal posed up a storm in Marrakesh’s golden sunlight for a new campaign by fashion brand Zara.

The in-demand model shared snaps from the campaign, photographed by Christian Macdonald, on her Instagram account.

The collection of photographs show Attal modelling looks from Zara’s laid-back Spring/Summer 2019 collection against a backdrop of rippling sand dunes. Her featured ensembled include kaftans and long-length cardigans with hefty stripes in a clay-and-beige color palette.

Attal is no stranger to fronting campaigns — in January, the model was chosen as one of seven rising stars to feature in British fashion house Alexander McQueen’s latest campaign.

The Spring/Summer 2019 collection photoshoot was shot by British fashion and documentary photographer Jamie Hawkesworth and featured Attal wearing a number of cowboy-inspired looks.

The year has gotten off to a busy start for Attal, who was similarly in demand in 2018, when she took to the catwalk for Elie Saab, Loewe and Dior during Paris Fashion Week in September and starred in Italian fashion label Versace’s summer advert campaign.

In May, luxury e-retailer Farfetch launched in the Middle East with a little help from the young model.

She starred in a photoshoot wearing pieces from collections on sale on the platform. The colorful photographs were accompanied by a snappy, chatty interview with the young model.
Readers got the chance to gain insight into her earliest fashion memories and learn some off-the-cuff facts about the star.

“Recently I’ve been obsessed with noughties trends. Everyone was so cool and effortless back then. Now I go out in a full Juicy Couture tracksuit with no shame,” she told Farfetch at the time.

“If I wasn’t a model, I’d probably be at university, studying to get into something like criminal investigations, profiling or law,” she added.

Attal finished off 2018 by hitting the sand dunes in the UAE — however, this time it wasn’t part of a high-end photoshoot, but rather a day of fun.

The model enjoyed an afternoon of sandboarding in the emirate of Sharjah and even posted a snap on Instagram at the time.

“Apparently sandboarding is a thing,” she captioned the sunset shot.
